CPR Program

As a part of our mission to educate the public, and with the support of grants from Strowd Roses Inc and your donations, South Orange Rescue Squad offers free CPR and AED (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillator) classes to individuals and groups within Orange County, North Carolina.


Our volunteer American Heart Association (AHA) Instructors teach Basic Life Support for the Health Care Provider, Heartsaver CPR certification classes for those who need a certification for work or volunteering, and CPR for Family and Friends. We also offer American Heart Association First Aid classes as requested.

For Individuals:

Through a partnership with the Town of Chapel Hill’s Parks and Recreation Department, SORS offers free monthly CPR and AED classes open to all individuals. To check our schedule of upcoming classes and to register for a CPR or First Aid class with SORS, please visit:


Additionally, there is occasionally space in group classes for individuals to participate, and we may be able to add you to a group class if that would better suit your needs. All of the scheduled classes are listed on the CPR Calendar. Please contact us regarding your availability, and to register for a group class.
